DVD printing is available using two basic methods: offset printing and silkscreening. Look to DVD printing companies that use offset printing for the highest-quality image on your DVD. There is no reason your DVD project, however small, can't look like the DVDs you can rent from your local Blockbuster.

Different printing methods have different effects. Fine stationery tends to utilize engraving, for raised prints, or thermography. Copiers use what is appropriately called reprographics. Flexography is the name for the process used on packaging like can labels.

The Best DVD Printing Is Offset Printing

Offset printing is a commercial printing standard used for magazines and catalogues, in addition to CD and DVD printing. Also known as "Offset lithography," offset printing uses a simple principle from physics: water and grease do not mix. The "grease," in this case, is the ink.

Images are applied to plates. Ink sticks to the image area of the plate, and water to the area without an image. The image is pressed first onto a rubber cylinder, and then in turn to the final target. The flexibility of the rubber allows printing on difficult surfaces like leather, metal, cloth, and wood. Top DVD printing houses tend to use offset printing. The best DVD printing companies don't just do the DVD printing, but can produce retail-ready products, assembled and shrink-wrapped. The Internet is a terrific place to research DVD printing houses and the services that they offer.
